Messiness - Thematic Photography

When the River Tees is in flood, the flow is controlled by the Tees Barrage at Stockton. Debris brought down river backs up along the banks and the inlets. A sodden mess results. This seemed just right for Carmi's 'messiness' theme this week.

A Cormorant surveys the mess behind the boom.
Not bothered at all by the mess.
But he/she will not dive in there!
To see messiness left by others you need to visit Thematic-photographic-245.

What happens to all that mess, is it just allowed to proceed downstream later. Would surely be better to scoop it all out somehow.

These are great for Carmi's theme, but they are also really awesome photos as well, just a great taste of real nature here!

Great photos Bob. I was interested in your cormorants and googled to see what the differences are between cormorants and shags (answer: no consistent distinction) The word cormorant might perhaps come from the Cornish giant "Cormoran" - nice!

What a lovely bird - and so beautifully captured! I love how you've captured this magnificent animal's spirit: that last shot I can practically see his/her beak turned up in disgust :)
